    RE Lordhedges Light
    The light is an Air Ministry AM 5c/825 ULTRA VIOLET cockpit
    light.It is approx 1'1/2 wide and 3'1/2 long,the details should be
    impressed on the opposite side of the slit,the glass is purple
    blue in colour,I will try later to post a photo.
    Maybe two crashed A/C.......

    wow - amazing - well identified! Now I need to find out what actually crashed there. Would the Public Records office be the first place to check?

    Also, what kind of aircraft carried these lights?

    The Kew public record office over your way is a very good place
    to start.
    I now think it could be a formation light, its very aerodynamic,
    something not needed inside a cockpit!
    Sorry I have no idea what aircraft had these fitted.Cheers.

    I'm 100% sure it is the light you identified - The markings are indeed present on the reverse side of the lamp as you mentioned; although very faint.
